    Question please help: NEED A swivel device for overhead monitor

    I am planning to use the current overhead light console to custom fit a screen within the shell. By cutting the shell and planting the screen monitor on top i would like to be able to swivel the screen down (open position) and up (concealed position). Think of it as a laptop which opens and closes - but upside down. i hope the description was somewhat clear.

    I am looking for a single arm to swing open and close but if dual arms are the only thing i find, i can make that work also.

    If anyone knows of links to supply stores which may provide this i would appreciate it.

    thanks

    PS if you need pics i'll be glad to include them.....

    doing something very similar with my Durango overhead.

    Order some stuff from Servo City. Decided to motorize my screen with one of there 12vdc motors and gear rack.

    Take a look over there and see if anything might help ya out.

    What you are looking for is called an "under cabinet mount." They're readily available all over the internet. Here is a search at Amazon.
